Two definitions of Pride:
* a feeling that you respect yourself and deserve to be respected by other people
* a feeling that you are more important or better than other people
It’s time many get down off that pedestal they are building for themselves. It’s not about you or what you have done. Only the Lord gets the Glory! This is not about your ministry, teaching, prophecy, or any other gift you have been given! This is all about more souls for the Kingdom!
5 Everyone with a proud heart is detestable to the Lord; be assured, he will not go unpunished.
18 Pride comes before destruction, and an arrogant spirit before a fall.
19 Better to be lowly of spirit with the humble than to divide plunder with the proud.
Psalm 14 “A Portrait of Sinners”
1 The fool says in his heart, “God does not exist.”
They are corrupt; they do vile deeds. There is no one who does good.
2 The Lord looks down from heaven on the human race
to see if there is one who is wise, one who seeks God.
3 All have turned away; all alike have become corrupt.
There is no one who does good, not even one.
4 Will evildoers never understand? They consume My people as they consume bread;
they do not call on the Lord.
5 Then they will be filled with terror, for God is with those who are righteous.
6 You sinners frustrate the plans of the afflicted, but the Lord is his refuge.
7 Oh, that Israel’s deliverance would come from Zion! When the Lord restores the fortunes of His people, Jacob will rejoice; Israel will be glad
22 Many will say to Me in that Day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Thy name, and in Thy name have cast out devils, and in Thy name done many wonderful works?’
23 And then will I profess unto them, ‘I never knew you: depart from Me, ye that work iniquity.’
